Book Description

Gaffigan has proven himself a major talent in stand-up, acting, and writing. As approachable as he is edgy, he's responsible for some of the funniest and most memorable moments in recent comedy and has seen huge success with his first two albums - Doing My Time and Beyond the Pale. King Baby captures his clever, quiet style and features the signature jokes you'd expect, on topics ranging from bowling to bacon. This is an hour of Jim at his hilarious best.


Sample Chapter


Your form is always with me as I walk,
empty and pierced. Today I stopped to see,
and touched by seeing, sparrows in the bittersweet,
deep in a copse of thorns,
their bodies soft among the sharpness,
indigo in that light.
Not mottled-slate. Not bluish-grey.
How good to find distraction
in precision.
